This is a support group for those who have had, or are preparing to have, weight loss surgery.  The surgery is just a tool for weight loss, and you will only get out of it what you put in.  The lifestyle changes that you make after surgery can be challenging, and you may find it helpful to have extra support.  Group discussions are led by a facilitator who has had weight loss surgery, and an OSF health care professional will also be present to answer any questions you may have.  

COVID-19 Safety Guidelines: 

  • You will be required to wear a mask while in the facility.
  • Socially-distanced seating will be provided.
  • Registration is NOT required to attend, however, it is helpful for the facilitators to know how many people to expect. 
  • You have the option to attend this meeting in-person at the RiverPlex, or join online using Microsoft Teams.  If you choose the online option, you will need to register to get a link to the meeting sent to you via e-mail.
